“Holy tomorrow, how good!”
Former Wallaby Nick Cummins is officially Australia’s Bachelor, with the season kicking off down under two weeks ago.
Now lovingly referred to as the Honey Badgelor, 30-year-old Cummins – made famous by his trademark catch-phrases and viral post-match interviews – has swapped his boots for a bouquet of roses as he tries to find his soulmate.
The season trailer released last week gives fans a glimpse of the action to come during the season as the winger endeavors to bag a different kind of meat pie.
In the trailer Cummins describes himself as someone who is “committed, fiercely loyal, and he’ll fight for love.”
Before Cummins’ appearance on the show was officially announced, a source told Australia’s Woman’s Day “he’s going to be great for the franchise. Funny, witty, with a huge cult following. This is a stroke of genius for the network.” The season premiere had close to one million overnight viewers.
On the field, Cummins made 87 appearances for the Western Force between 2008 and 2015, and represented Australia on 15 occasions.
